About the Retreat
This retreat is open to initiated practitioners of highest yoga tantra. This practice is powerful precisely because it involves transforming the most intense emotions. In order to utilise these emotions in the path we must recognise them in our daily life and fearlessly learn to transform them, using tantric techniques. With these techniques, highest yoga tantra is the supremely blissful precious swift way to reach the highest enlightenment for the sake of all beings.
Because tantric practice requires us to know many details, there is a danger of approaching it mechanistically, and even undermining its efficacy through anxiety about ‘getting it right’ and keeping one’s ‘commitments’. The unfortunate result of this can be that the practice becomes dry, lifeless and even irksome, whereas the lifeblood of tantra is the creative energy of emotions, transformed and not suppressed.
This retreat will utilise yogic practices, bodywork, discussion, meditation and teaching to help practitioners tap into their emotional reservoirs as a resource for their practice.
